CFCY 630 will be on the air for a few more months, but it too is moving 
to FM later this year. The 1240 in Summerside moved to FM a few years 
back, so the last remaining AMs in PEI will be a pair of very low power 
(10 watt?) travelers-information stations.

True story about the Summerside 1240: when Garrett and I were up there 
in 1998, we pulled up, took our pictures, and just before we were 
leaving, a bus full of Japanese tourists also stopped by the side of the 
road - and THEY started taking pictures of the towers.

(PEI is a huge tourism destination for the Japanese, who revere "Anne of 
Green Gables.")
